CAT6 a bit waste money lar. Just get a CAT5e is enough.
thanks for advise.
Actually I am not sure how the Synology NAS to handle DDNS and configured port forward as it noted will overwrite portforward on router.
Well, I tested the DDNS connection in DSM, it works. However, i noticed my DDNS on router is Disable.
if the router firewall is blocking the port, should i set port forward at DSM or router itself? Is the WOL default port in 9?
There is no simple way to do it unfortunately. You have to copy it all to somewhere before you can do it. Upgrade to another Synology NAS is just a matter of plugging out the old drives and putting them into the new one, but changing the drives is an entire different ball game.
Vulpix you are wrong in a way.
Yes you can do it if your a running SHR. Which is Synology raid format.
You can remove one drive. Put in a 4TB, and let the Synology rebuild your data, once complete to it again. Might take awhile but it is possible.
With SHR you can have different size hard drives as well.
I would not recommend that way because it will take a longer time than just straight out copying. If your data is bigger than 8tb than different story...
Ddns on router, can leave it as disabled. On your synology, make sure your ddns settings are correct. In addition, on the ddns side, ensure that the ddns website/host directs to your IP address given to you by your provider. For me I'm using dlinkddns so the ddns website tells me what ip I'm using (the one accessing the ddns web page) just check that and also that the ports are correctly forwarded on your router.
For me I directly configure the ports on th router and I don't use the ddns to help me configure and override the rules in the router
Need help here from lao jiao bros. I migrated my 4x500gb from my old CS-406 to the DS413J and everything went smoothly (data and all) except for photo station. It was working ok with DSM3.1 on the CS-406 but now I basically can't open it even on my LAN. Tried un-install and re-install photo station but didn't work. But funny enough the pics are accessible on DS Photo+ app on my iphone and ipad.
See pic below on blank page on firefox and internal 500 server error on IE when I tried to open the link.
